I’m using a cursive/script font for the addresses on my invitations. Nothing super crazy, but for the capital letter/zipcodes, some of them look a little different than a regular block letter/number. Has anyone had any issues with invitations not being sent because of using a certain font? I don’t know if it’s read by an actual human, or if it goes through a machine.

People have awful handwriting you would think they would be able to read it, but to be honest I would need to see and example in order to give you an educated opinion.

@hotchocolate: I had a really fancy print and mine delivered fine. My was italicized and cursive with a little extra something!

The post office actually has computers that read mail and they’re pretty smart computers!

Yay, thanks! To me, I can read it… but you never know.

Actually, while a PP said computers at the post office read them, the truth is I READ THEM. I do data entry for the post office, and if the computer can’t read the handwriting (about 80% of the time it cannot) an image is sent to a person sitting at a computer who types in the address. If the person cannot read it, it will get rejected and another person will try to read it and type in the address. If it gets rejected a second time a person will hand toss the mail to where it is supposed to go. If no one can read it, it will get returned to sender.

@Miss. Snowball: I had no idea that’s how it worked! Very interesting =) Makes me more comfortable about script fonts on my envelopes…. although I only put the addressee’s name in script. The address was in a typed block font. Hopefully I made your job a little easier!
